Butyrate / Propionate

low temp material rigid material UV exposure material

Butyrate, propionate, and acetate are cellulosics. They are clear, rigid thermoplastics. With a UV stabilizer they are used extensively in lighting and outdoor applications. They may be used for tubing and profile applications. They may be colored and will yield a very glossy, attractive part.

Selecting the best thermoplastic resin for your plastic tubing and plastic profiles requires that you first determine how it is being used, where it will be used (environment) and your cost constraints. Please feel free to contact us to further discuss your material requirements.
